Say you're driving around this weekend, you've been away from the TV set all day and you're looking for some snappy banter, informed chatter and a score or two or 50.In Tony Bruno's not-so-humble opinion, you couldn't do better than a few minutes or more with ESPN Radio, which is what your local sports show wishes it could be."To me, this is the perfect format for the weekend. You've got quality talent, people who know what they're doing and you're getting the latest scores," said Bruno. "Local radio cannot compete with it. There's no way a local format can put the right people on the air and deliver the format that we do."

Baltimore Ravens' Terrence Cody is fat, according to Mike Golic from ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning show. Golic's comment was made on Friday morning, during a discussion about Cody's objections to the new NFL jerseys : "Terrence Cody is about 350. Terrence, I don't mean this in a bad way, but you're fat. I mean am I making up that you have some fat on you when you weight 350? Listen, if you're under 10 percent fat percentage, god love you, but I am pretty sure you are not. "

You would think that with the city on the verge of returning to the NFL after 12 seasons, Baltimoreans would be breathlessly tuning in by the score to see their new team.You would be wrong.The first two exposures of the soon-to-be Baltimore Browns to their new market have drawn less than spectacular ratings, leading one to believe that Charm City hasn't quite caught Browns fever.Chris Mecchi, Channel 13's ratings researcher and this week's sole and official "Media Watch" ratings supplier, reports that Monday night's AFC Central showdown at Pittsburgh did a 15.6 rating and 25 share for Channel 2.Though that's one of the higher Monday night ratings of the year, it's more than a point below the 16.7/27 Nielsen national average for that game, and almost a point below the 16.5/28 Channel 45 got for Sunday's Dallas-San Francisco dustup.

Nobody telecasts more Orioles home games than Home Team Sports. So, when the club and the Maryland Stadium Authority were considering television needs for Oriole Park at Camden Yards, they took the logical step of involving HTS."We are the ones that basically designed the broadcast end," said Bill Brown, an HTS producer of Orioles games.And one of the improvements at OPACY -- the stadium name that beats ring around the collar -- is really the pits. That's as in camera pits.On either end of both dugouts, camera pits have been designed for improved television shots, Brown said.

SPILLING OUT the notebook and offering up small pieces of my mind (which is about all I can afford to give up): On Sunday, ESPN begins its "SportsCenter Across America" summer tour, in which various anchors fan out across the country, appearing at sporting events in all 50 states on 50 consecutive days. We'll get plenty of baseball drop-ins - from the majors to minors to youth league - and a few more off-the-beaten-track appearances, such as from skydiving, freestyle Frisbee and pie-eating events.

How do you hype the return of Magic Johnson to the NBA while keeping the expectations to a respectable level?That's the pleasant little quandary facing the Turner NBA telecast team, which has been handed a dream meeting tonight (TNT, 10:30) between Johnson's Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls and the omnipresent Michael Jordan, which should break all regular-season ratings records.But Johnson, who made a triumphant comeback Tuesday night against Golden State, is, after all, 36 years old, and 4 1/2 years removed from his last NBA season, not to mention a carrier of the AIDS virus.

Back with more sports media notes because, unfortunately for you, the tide of change sweeping the country doesn't include me yet: * Anita Marks is staying on the air in Baltimore for another year. On Wednesday, she signed a new one-year contract to remain at 105.7 The Fan, even though she had an offer to return to her native Miami area for a radio job, Marks said yesterday. "I had some other offers, but after it was all said and done, CBS Radio made it clear they wanted me to be part of the future," Marks said.

Another news bomb exploded this past week. Nobody noticed. Everyone is preoccupied with more overt terrorism, with the threat posed by, pardon the ESPNspeak, Osama "Yo' Mama" Bin Laden. On Wednesday, Sprint Corporation and ESPN announced they are teaming up to develop a "sport mobile phone service" to be called - what else? - ESPN Mobile. The ESPN-ization of America rolls on. World domination to follow. After SportsCenter. Boo-yah! Let's see, we've already got a nationwide chain of ESPN Zone restaurants ... the annual ESPY Awards for athletic achievement ... ESPN 1, ESPN 2, ESPN Classic and Spanish-language ESPN Deportes cable channels ... ESPN Radio ... the ESPN-concocted Winter and Summer X Games ... ESPN the Magazine.

After all, Alec Baldwin just came into your office and said you can't drink the coffee until you close on some deals. And Kevin Spacey is refusing to give you new leads.

The Ravens may not be trash-talking, but they were drawn into some toilet humor yesterday. In this week's Sporting News, it was reported that Ravens coach Brian Billick told his team during a Saturday walk-through at Miami's Pro Player Stadium "to [urinate] on the field to mark your territory." But according to Ravens officials, the reporter received that quote from a team spokesman, and Billick used only the words "mark your territory" in addressing his players. The quote has since become the lead story on ESPN's SportsCenter and the talk of sports radio.
